On “Psychology Behind the Headlines”, hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest MHTN Chief Medical Officer Dr. Dan Bober discuss about the new study suggesting there’s a strong link between political beliefs and our desire to “cancel” others.

Politics Has Become Personal

When political views are deeply tied to our identity, any challenge to those beliefs can feel like a personal attack. This fuels the desire to punish those who think differently.

The Rise of “Us vs. Them”

We’re seeing a shift from polite debate to demonizing those with different views. This mentality breeds resentment and makes canceling people feel justified.

The Need for Civil Discourse

To move away from cancel culture, we must learn to respectfully discuss differing ideas. This means focusing on understanding, not winning at any cost.
